[applause] >> in 2007 i was honored to serve as hillary clinton's campaign director. my entire family met her at a campaign event in may of that year. having only met hillary clinton as portrayed in media events, i was not prepared for her warm and authenticity. after exchanging greetings, she looked at her son and looked back at me to ask, how is your health care? does it cover everything you need? i am not sure i can explain the warmth her beacon of light provided. in that moment, for me, for our family, for our son, hillary clinton embodied hope, and in our brief conversation, she showed me what makes her the best public servant i believe our country has ever k
